Default motherboard buying help

I have an Intel 865gv socket 478 motherboard with a celeron d processor. I had just bought a brand new motherboard, only to find out that it doesnt fit into my computer. So, As long as I buy a motherboard with the dimensions that it needs to fit into my PC, can it be any chipset and stuff? Do I have to follow the whole Intel 865GV stuff and the ICH5 stuff? Can I just pick on that suits my wishes?, as long as the dimensions are right of couse?


Please help quicK!!! I wanna order my new one son!!!! Please and thank you!



Mike

um yea only thing i'd make sure is that if your using an acctually videocard or intergrated
cause if its intergrated you need to pick yourself up a videocard .... and the usual make sure you buy a mobo that supports all your compents.
